Canopus (art suite 1.14.00) status:

Looking good for tag by the end of the week, and then it’s the builds.

Resolved issues:

Issue #4946: art memory usage. Memory spike at the end was addressed, but as discussed at previous stakeholders meeting, the gradual memory growth issue was deferred. The gradual memory growth was slightly mitigated by resolving issue #8427, which involved removing an unnecessary member of EventID [see the Art 1.14.00 release notes for breaking changes].

Feature #2352: Allows one to specify products with identical instance names and types in the same module for Event, SubRun, and Run. [There was a possibility that this feature needed to be bumped from Canopus due to possible merging issues with feature 6071. Indeed, that happened. Will be implemented in future release, potentially 1.14.02.]

Unresolved issues still slated for Canopus release:

Feature #6071 is the big feature (merging input files) for the release which is not yet resolved. The implementation is complete, just some tidying up of tests is underway.
Feature #3776 – Lynn has been able to do cetbuildtools changes requested by Chris, so resolving the skeleton generator is doable.
Feature #2967 – Enabling cet::map_vector support for FindOne/Many and View should be doable by end of the week
Feature #8442 – Mu2e has requested switching cet::map_vector key size from 32 to 64 bits. Also doable.

Summer art course:

Will be Aug. 3 through 7. Rob said that once the prerequisites for the course we circulated, the organizers did want feedback.
